  • Japan law will require Apple to allow alternate iPhone app stores

    This isn’t an easy issue.

    Whilst my view is that apple is largely a responsible company with a good moral compass, there are some people who feel they are not. They do wield extraordinary power, bu the nature of the number of their devices

    The irony that the EU - a big organisation with its own goal of sustaining the interests of its members (primarily the rich companies that lobby within it), should be lost to no one. 

    Apple should allow app stores to be installed. It should not allow them to use Xcode or the apple developed APIs for free. If a user decides to install the other App Store, it should come with a choice that apps run in a ‘sandbox’, or the user accepts that any software malfunctions will not be supportable by apple. 

    Whatever happens, apple will try to impose some limits to, quite rightly, secure users data and make sure the phone doesn’t explode in its hand. And these government organisations will argue they are trying to control the market. It’s a lose lose!

    oh, and I REALLY like the idea of apple making iPhones that can come with nothing installed. Then people can install their own OS and apple can’t be accused of ‘limiting the iPhone’ in any way. 😂 (can’t see any risks with this 😂).

  • USB-C on iPhone is good - but not as an excuse for a bad law

    ova said: By the way, is the current UK prime minister elected by the people?  Did not think so. 
    Your message was so unnecessarily condescending, I felt compelled to reply. In the UK we elect a government, we don’t elect a leader. Hence ‘prime minister’ not ‘president’.
